Finished the toe on sock two, not 10 minutes ago! I kitchenered and pulled those bad boys on as fast as I could. They actually fit better than I thought before. Definitely well enough for me to keep them (sorry Manda). I'm pretty pleased with them and man, they are comfy.
Lots of pictures, just so I can compare and contrast between the two of them.
Sock One Heel Gusset.
Sock Two Heel Gusset. I got noticeably better at picking up the stitches for the gusset on sock two.
Sock One Kitchener Toe. Had a weird ridge of purl bumps halfway through (after the tutorial video ended).
Sock Two Kitchener Toe. No weird purl bumps. Did it spot on this time.
Aw, don't they look so happy?
The only thing I would change if I do them again is to make them taller. They are a we bit on the short side. I have quite a bit of the yarn left over. Maybe enough for a pair of ankle socks?
